Go Forth and Forage!

Autumn is the time to find conkers, acorns, pine cones and many other types of seeds and fruits that have fallen from the trees. When I was a child, I used to love making acorn people, and we have had great fun this year making some acorn and conker creatures with what we’ve collected with a little help from my glue gun.

I also love turning pine cones into animals and later in the year into Christmas decorations.  We have just made these cute little pine cone hedgehogs with the addition of some oven baked clay, and I think they’re adorable!

You can also use what you find and forage as means to paint with, and here are some great ideas for younger children.

All the Leaves are Brown

As Autumn arrives, the leaves start to fall in array of beautiful colours and shapes. Collecting leaves is  something children of all ages can enjoy. There are lots of leaf art ideas here to give you some inspiration on what to do with them once you’ve collected them.

Don’t Forget the Trees

Tress can also provide some great inspiration for some Autumn Kids crafts.  The bark of different trees can be quite varied and interesting and make great bark rubbings.

Sticks and twigs can also be collected and used in a number of projects. We made this autumn Bonfire night collage last year with twigs and leaves.

Don’t Let the Weather Stop You

If the weather is cold and miserable, and you want to stay snuggled up indoors rather than venturing out, there are still some great nature inspired Autumn Kid’s crafts you can do without setting foot outside your door!
